Does the Buffalo Bills media relations department secretly hate wide receiver Stevie Johnson? It’s the only explanation I can come up on why they’d post this collage of Johnson photos from Sunday’s practice on their official Facebook page.
While the first three of four Johnson photos show him making what looks like a spectacular catch, the last image is one that Bills fans are quite familiar with—an image of a ball thrown to him hitting the ground…or so it seems.
Johnson has been one of the bright spots for Buffalo over the past three seasons, posting a team-record trio of three consecutive 1,000-yard receiving seasons. However, Johnson has occasionally been plagued with the dropped ball and this official team issued social media apparently served as a painful reminder to some.
To be fair, the last image of Johnson isn’t actually him dropping a pass, but spinning the ball on the ground after making a play. Going by the comments on the team’s Facebook page, however, many don’t see it as such.
